He’s currently expecting his first child.
But Simon Cowell previously fathered a baby with long term friend Sinitta in 2009 with the singer deciding to have an abortion rather than keep the child.
Sinitta had previously spoken about the abortion but has now named the music mogul as the father of the unborn child.
She said: "I know the curse has been lifted because I have been blessed with children and now Simon is too, plus God forgives.
"I don't think there was ever a curse really - I was just talking about my thoughts at the time."
Friends close to the X Factor boss claim that he had no idea about the termination while Sinitta has been very ‘emotional’ since it was announced he and Lauren Silverman were expecting a son.
The insider told the paper: "It is an emotional time for her. She is happy for Simon about him becoming a father but was disappointed he did not confide in her earlier about Lauren and their relationship.
"They are very close and always will be. They could have been parents together once and there is a bond between them.
"Sinitta will always have huge affection for Simon. They grew up together and are friends for life. You can understand why this is such a difficult time for her."
When the news was revealed that Simon was to be a father, Sinitta posted a cryptic message on Twitter which suggested she was conflicted by the revelation.
She wrote: “Something has just happened ..half miracle, half nightmare! #WakeMeUpIWantToGetOff!!”
